Since it was announced yesterday (June 16) that Teen Wolf alum Tyler Hoechlin had officially been cast to play Superman in season 2 of Supergirl, fans have been taking to Twitter to react to the news. Among the reactions is one from none other than Barry Allen himself, Grant Gustin.
“Superman is officially coming to the Bertlanti-verse!! So dope! Welcome @TylerLHoechlin.” wrote the actor just after the news broke.
Meanwhile, Hoechlin himself took to Twitter to let fans know how thrilled he is to be taking on one of the most iconic superheroes around.
“Could not be more honored & humbled to be given the opportunity to play this incredible & beloved character,” wrote Hoechlin. “Can’t wait to get to work!”
Hoechlin’s Superman is set to be introduced right at the beginning of Supergirl‘s second season, but we’re looking forward to seeing just how big of a role he’ll play in Kara’s life in season 2. Additionally, given the fact that The CW is known for its epic crossovers, we’re definitely crossing our fingers that he’ll get in on the action if and when Supergirl joins forces with some of our favorite characters from The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow!
Supergirl season 2 premieres on The CW in the fall.
